July 04 - Japanese Elvis Collectors Seen In Kalamazoo

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another release; "Breaking News - Elvis Seen In Kalamazoo, Michigan!"

From the press-release:
Our new CD is titled "Breaking News - Elvis Seen In Kalamazoo, Michigan!" (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2017-12) recorded live from the audience in Kalamazoo, MI, April 26th, 1977.
Among the concert highlights are ”Big Boss Man“, „Heartbreak Hotel“, ”And I Love You So”, ”My Way” and “Early Morning Rain”.
This is a previously unreleased recording, taken from a 1st generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape. Portions of the Kalamazoo concert were released from a soundboard tape previously, but this show has never been available on CD in its entirety before. You may ask your supplier for samples.

The CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak filled with a concert review from the local press and a collection of images taken on April 26th, 1977 in Kalamazoo, MI. If you have enjoyed our May 1977 release called "Road To Nowhere" then you will surely enjoy our latest release, too.

Everybody Let's Rock - From Japan With Love Vol. 3


Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is the double CD "Everybody Let's Rock". 

From the press-release:
Recorded live from the audience in Las Vegas, NV, August 5th, 1972, D/S and M/S, this 2CD-set is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 3" because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club. 

The Las Vegas, August 5th, 1972 Dinner show was first released in 2008 on the CD "Directly From The 1972 Elvis Summer Festival". This earlier CD was taken from different, inferior source tape. Our new recording is of much better sound quality. The Las Vegas, August 5th, 1972 Midnight show is previously unreleased.

There is no need to discuss the fact that ALL shows from August/September 1972 are excellent! Natural highlights are especially ballads like "What Now My Love", ''An American Trilogy", "My Way" or "For The Good Times" and rock’n’rolls like „A Big Hunk O’Love” or "Johnny B. Goode" One song from Midnight show stands out: a cool, one-off of "Jailhouse Rock"! Needless to say that this is a rarity for 1972, and what a great version it is too - it easily beats all other 70's versions.

Both concerts are taken from a recently found first generation copies of original audience recorded cassette tapes. They were never before available in listenable sound, until now! You may ask your supplier for samples.

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed double digipak with great collection of quality images taken in August 1972. We are planning another CD taken from those "Japanese" tapes. So stay tuned!
